Hadrian’s Wall Path Cicerone




Guidebook for walking along Hadrian’s Wall Path between Bowness-on-Solway and Wallsend in Newcastle. A World Heritage Site, Hadrian’s Wall is a famous frontier, combining striking natural landscapes with monumental remains. Ten years ago Mark Richards created a beautifully hand-scribed guide to a coast-to-coast Wall Walk. Since then the Countryside Agency has, through careful negotiation, made this a reality in a new National Trail. The revelation of this new route is how brilliantly it brings the whole Roman Frontier beneath one’s feet. This guide provides full details and instructions for walking the wall in both directions. Richly documented with colour images, it is accompanied by detailed maps, photographs and panoramic perspectives. In this new guide Mark shares his evident passion for the countryside and landmarks of the Tyne/Solway corridor.
